2. Latrell Sprewell (2002)
Sprewell was one of the NBA’s most colorful characters because he was no stranger to controversy. His most infamous moment was when he tried to choke out coach P.J. Carlesimo in a practice. But that’s not why he’s on this list. No, we’re interested in the time he broke his hand. Allegedly, he hosted a party on his yacht but became enraged when a woman vomited on the deck (via CBC Sports).
His instant reaction was to punch her boyfriend but this didn’t end well. After he shamefully tried to assault the man, he missed and hit the wall instead. Then, the Knicks star fractured his pinkie which wasn’t helpful for an NBA player. He wore a cast for a month on doctor’s orders. Furthermore, he went to Milwaukee for the party against the orders of the Knicks’ organization.
